Facility Security


Solving Loitering and Open Access Challenges

Loitering is generally not considered a crime with few instances of arrests reported nationally, but it is becoming an increasing problem for a multitude of reasons. One being the use of private spaces such as public-faced restrooms for drug use, other forms of illicit behavior, or as safe havens where homeless individuals are seeking shelter and protection from the elements. In any case, the misuse and prolonged occupancy of publicly accessible spaces prevents them from being accessed for their intended purposes by legitimate users.

Shaping the Use of Technology

In the ever-evolving healthcare landscape, hospitals are increasingly turning to video technology for a range of critical applications that extend far beyond traditional security. These innovative systems play a pivotal role in several areas including inventory control, drug diversion prevention, patient monitoring, and compliance with hospital procedures and industry standards.

Vehicle Ramming Attacks

In the world of cyber security, a cyber-attack exploits users having weak passwords or protections in place, making it easy for threat actors to cause harm. Destructive attacks in the physical world work much in the same way, using simple tactics and a wide attack surface to intentionally cause harm. The threat of vehicle ramming attacks introduces a new dimension of challenges for security professionals, property managers, and business owners alike.

Early Detection and Deterrence

Threats of theft, vandalism, and terrorism are a continual concern for those responsible for the security of high-risk facilities. Perimeter security is vital to maintaining safety, safeguarding assets and ensuring continuity of business at these sites.
